While passing a small millinery
shop, old chap, I overheard an in dignant customer expostulating with the proprietress for unreasonable de lays in completing her hat. The door, was open, so I could not help over-, hearing these wrathy. words :- "Say, are you building me a lid of a skyscraper? Last time I soared into this Kelly "bazaar -you gave me a double-barreled affidavit that my bean cover would be rigged in full sail by the time the lunch whistle blew. And now you've got the crust to say it ain't even got its coat of varnish. Well, this is the last time I ever order a beau-grabber at this joint!" My word! o o THAT GRIFFITHS & SON CO. CASE' "The charges brought against offi cers of the oJhn Griffiths & Son Co. for not using a safety device required by law involve felony and if the muni cipal courts refuse to start the case, the evidence, will be presented, to the February grand jury by the 'state's, attorney's office,", said Asst. State's, Att'y Mike Sullivan today. 1 .. Sullivan met John P. Reed, attor ney for the state factory inspection department, yesterday. Another con ference will be held next week. Judge Newcomer refused to take the case because the prison term called for in the law is longer than this court can impose. J. Kent Green, attorney for the chief justice of municipal courts, gave an apinion that the case should go before the grand jury instead of municipal courts.
